Track Name: Intro/A warrior's Blessing
Sung in Latin

Et benedicta tu, o fortes, ut sicut aura spiritus amoris, ut pedibus et gladius celer, memento amator, precor ut redeat ad eam

English translation

And blessed be thou, O you brave one, so that just like the breeze, is the spirit of love, and so that your feet and sword will be swift. Remember the one you love, I pray that you will return to her.
Track Name: Dust to Dust
Awake, but dreaming, lost in a void

so high, but falling, dying inside

you wander through hourglass sands

until they’re still forever


Bittersweet, you’re with me now, but I know that you’ll soon be gone

Hard to breathe, the pain right now was happiness then

Mystery, what is the reason? What are we living for?

You’re my victory, until we’re crushed from dust to dust


So fragile, your tenderness

I ache for something I’d never wished

You haunt my thoughts, creating your shadows

until the darkness covers


Before I follow the light

Before my life flashes before my eyes


As sand falls, the pile it builds
my soul now crushed, I no longer feel.
Eyes grow heavy as shadows consume,
breath now empty, I welcome this tomb.

Before I follow the light

Before my life flashes before my eyes


Wind surrounds me, as grains release
the ground now empty, my person deceased.
Darkness it falls, to shadows of night,
hourglass shattered, the final sight.


Bittersweet, you’re with me now, but I know that you’ll soon be gone

Hard to breathe, the pain right now was happiness then

Mystery, what is the reason? What are we living for?

You’re my victory, until we’re crushed from dust to dust
Track Name: The Ferrymans Shore
With words like gentle breeze, your voice caresses me

As the sun goes down, I fall into a dream

I stand upon the shore

and the boatman’s coming closer


In the silence of eternity, If I’m carried across the darkened sea

come face to face with my reckoning, will our hearts be true?


I’ll wait for you, I’ll wait for you

Death/Black
I I will wait for you......At the ferrymans shore


I’ll wait for you at the ferryman’s shore

I’ll not cross over, I won’t succumb to Charon’s oar

I won’t surrender at the ferryman’s shore

until the day your hand’s in mine once more

at the ferryman’s shore


With hopes like falling stars, I feel it in my heart

I never would forget the burden of regret

I have to stand my ground

when the boatman stares me down

In the silence of eternity, If I’m carried across the darkened sea

come face to face with my reckoning, will our hearts be true?


I’ll wait for you, I’ll wait for you
Death/Black
I I will wait for you At the ferrymans shore


I’ll wait for you at the ferryman’s shore

I’ll not cross over, I won’t succumb to Charon’s oar

I won’t surrender at the ferryman’s shore

until the day your hand’s in mine once more

at the ferryman’s shore


(spoken)
Child your final ride beckons, walk with me now to eternity


If you’re bound for the fields of Elysium

where heroes go to rest

I’ll never rest until I go there as your heroine

Elysium, Elysium

(doom vocals) over end

Love and life....sorrow and death....take my hand....your final ride

(whispered)
I am the ferryman
Track Name: Perseverance
Blades of truth passing through

sometimes it’s hard to find the answers, search within you

sometimes you think you’ll never make it, perseverance

Hold onto the one who breathes for you

everything you can imagine, do you remember

everything you swore to live for, till your last breath?


(Rich & Talia overlap)
Is this worth fighting for....
You said you’d never surrender
Tired my pride is beaten....
even when walls close in
Perhaps my vow is now broken....
you said you’d always remember
Pride destroyed should I return....
the one who waits for you


Facing truth in the silence, deep within
Perseverance
eternity in a moment, time stands still
Perseverance
every time you close your eyes, see the reasons in disguise
Perseverance
find your strength before it dies, perseverance
Perseverance

(rich & Talia overlap)
Body bloodied I feel nothing....
when daylight fades into darkness
Pain non existent it's gone....
dream of another day
Valor the will to survive....
searching the stars for an answer
Destruction fills my bloodshot eyes...
remember who you are


Facing truth in the silence, deep within
Perseverance
eternity in a moment, time stands still
Perseverance
every time you close your eyes, see the reasons in disguise
Perseverance
find your strength before it dies, perseverance
Perseverance

(rich & talia alternate)
Vision...Blinded...Gone...Battle rages on
Listen
Shadows...Engulf...Enshroud...Fatigue drags on
let me call you home
Temptation...Beckons...Me...I answer the call
aaahhh..
I...Will...Overcome...I can conquer all
when the winter’s gone


Blades of truth passing through

sometimes it’s hard to find the answers, search within you

sometimes you think you’ll never make it, perseverance

Hold onto the one who breathes for you

everything you can imagine, do you remember

everything you swore to live for, till your last breath?
Track Name: Your Haunting Eyes
I feel you are near me, although you have been gone

a chill runs down my spine as the leaves rustle around me

and the leaves glitter gold


You are still with me, although we don’t speak

life’s hand dealt this fate again

will we ever meet?


Your eyes are haunting, the scars, they run deep

your smile, it cuts me, my heart you keep

The strings that bind me, won’t set me free

your eyes are haunting, and write this tragedy


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free

to live without regret and release your memory

your haunting eyes

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong

been living in the past now for far too long

your haunting eyes


The tragedy that bestows me, the fear of being alone

the pain that enshrouds me, the realization

you’re now gone


These chains won’t release me, although I fight every day

what happened to my ability, can’t live my life my way

anymore


Your eyes are haunting, the scars, they run deep

your smile, it cuts me, my heart you keep

The strings that bind me, won’t set me free

your eyes are haunting, and write this tragedy


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free

to live without regret and release your memory

your haunting eyes

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong

been living in the past now for far too long

your haunting eyes


I make my own rules now, I make my fate

these chains that once bound me were my weakest trait

now I’m in control, I hold the key

I’m no longer trapped, I’ve set me free


Your eyes are haunting, the scars, they run deep

your smile, it cuts me, my heart you keep

The strings that bind me, won’t set me free

your eyes are haunting, and write this tragedy


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free

to live without regret and release your memory

your haunting eyes

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong

been living in the past now for far too long

your haunting eyes


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free

to live without regret and release your memory

your haunting eyes

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong

been living in the past now for far too long

your haunting eyes
